RE: professional help with tax return

Hi All,

I have received what I suppose is a tax return for private income.

It is the first time I will need to fill one out. Also I don't speak German.

Please can you recommend professional help for this and share any stories that you may have about good and bad service.

Many thanks

You could check with your Steueramt and maybe there is someone who can speak English? So far I found them always quite helpful.

And I think there is a thread/stickie somewhere that explains what needs to be entered where in your tax return

Indeed, when we moved to TI and I spoke no Italian, I went to the local office and there was a guy who spoke perfect English!

He showed me what to do, and since then I've done it myself.

Need to go again now that we have bought our apartment, but at least now I speak Italian.

Re: professional help with tax return

Hi,

Just as an update. I went to the Steueramt who said that they basically can not help with filling out the form and also can't recommend anyone that can help

I am now in the process of trying to find a qualified tax accountant to help me (trust me the thing should be straightforward I am at the boarder in terms of income level for filing a tax return and only have one income stream from my employer - I also save all my payslips and anyting official looking .

So just a shout out again, in case there is someone in the forum that knows someone...

Thanks

Re: professional help with tax return

There are about 100 threads regarding filling in your tax returns, and recommending English-speaking specialists. Do a search.

PS: I believe there is even a guide, with screenshots, in English, on the Cantonal website!

Thank you, I think with "tax advisor" I can see some of the threads referred to.
